Planning a 3 week trip in 15 Dec 2008 - 4 Jan to go from LA to San Diego across to Flagstaff/ Sedona, up to Grand Canyon, Monument Valley, Arches National Park, Bryce Canyon, through Zion, Las Vegas, Death Valley, Yosemite, San Fran and back to LA. Phew!
The big question which I really cant see an answer to though there is discussion is - do I need to carry chains? Also what happens if you hire a rental car - do people put chains on them - can you hire chains or is it better to buy.
Also I was going to book in advance accommodation but now I am thinking that it may be silly to do this as if it snows then I may not get to Moab, Sedona, Grand Canyon etc. What do you think?
